"When Heaven calls to me, Sing me no sad elegy,

Say I died, Loving bride,

Loving wife, Loving life."

- Sherman Edwards, 1776


"It is not costly paintings, tapestries, priceless bric-a-brac, various ornaments, costly furniture, fields, herds, houses and lands which constitute the ideal home, nor yet the social enjoyments and ease so tenaciously sought by many; but it is rather beauty of soul, cultivated, loving, faithful, true spirits; hands that help and hearts that sympathize; love that seeks not its own, thoughts and acts that touch our lives to finer issues --- these lie at the foundation of the ideal home."

- Joseph F. Smith

(13 Nov 1838 - 19 Nov 1918)


"Above all else, children need to know and feel that they are loved, wanted, and appreciated. They need to be assured of that often."

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

(25 May 1803 - 27 Apr 1882)


"...there never should be a shade of difference in your feelings; there never should be a thing permitted to come between you and estrange you one from another; you should not allow it."

- Joseph F. Smith

(13 Nov 1838 - 19 Nov 1918)


"...Behold your little ones and teach them. I need not remind you that your example will do more than anything else in impressing upon their minds
a pattern of life."

~ Gordon B. Hinckley

(b. 23 June 1910)



You are listening to the Beatles' song, "When I'm 64".
Why? Because Nathaniel suggested it, and it seemed to make perfect sense.

When I'm 64

When I get older, losing my hair,
Many years from now,
Will you still be sending me a valentine,
Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I'd been out 'til quarter to three,
Would you lock the door?
Will you still need me,
Will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?

Every summer, we could rent a cottage in the Isle of Wight,
If it's not too dear.
Oh, you'll be older too - Ah!
And if you say the word, I could stay with you.

I could be handy mending a fuse
When your lights have gone.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside,
Sunday mornings, go for a ride,
Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
Who could ask for more?
Will you still need me,
Will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?

Every summer, we could rent a cottage in the Isle of White,
If it's not too dear.
We shall scrimp and save, grandchildren at your knees,
Vera, Chuck, and Dave.

Send me a postcard, drop me a line,
Stating point of view.
Indicate precisely what you mean to say,
Yours sincerely, wasting away,
Give me an answer, fill in a form,
Mine forevermore.
Will you still need me,
Will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?
